When you watch the Netflix series about Unabomber Ted Kaczynski, pay attention to the first time he hurt someone, intentionally. That’s when the problem should have been nipped in the bud. However, the practice of allowing white males to get away with malicious, vicious acts, during childhood, led to their more horrific acts later in life. If Ted had been African-American, he would have been punished sufficiently in primary school for passing a note filled with explosives to his hurt childhood friend. If he was African-American, he would have been shot to death, when they first arrested him. However, white lives matter and Ted got to spend the rest of his days in solitary confinement, costing tax-payers hundreds of thousands of dollars for his upkeep.
This conversation stemmed from a discussion on the various religions and the history created by people:
The discussion began with two Professors, women of color, Dr. F.A. and Dr. J.C., explaining to C.G., a Jewish retired teacher (K-12), about how black children have been disenfranchised by public school teachers, principals, and guidance counselors. C.G. was so touched by this information that she began to cry. Of course, tears are the pressure valve of the heart and C.G. did not know this had happened. She was one of two white teachers at a Detroit public school with a population of 99.9% black children.
Dr. J.C. had just returned from giving a presentation at a conference on “The Problem of Discipline” in public schools. She and her two panelists agreed that black children did not have discipline problems but were victims of what Dr. Joy DeGruy calls Post-Traumatic Slave Syndrome. Black children are taught by white teachers who are not sensitive to their family structure, lack of attention at home when it comes to academics, financial challenges, and the lack of reading materials they are fed in school that are relevant to their life experiences.
The discussion that ensued was that Dr. J.C. stated the involvement of Jewish owners of slave ships and as the insurers of the cargo – human beings captured and kidnapped from African villages. C.G. disputed this claim and found research to dispute it:
This disputes what you said. Jews are only 2% of the world population now, so even if SOME owned slaves (which is awful, Jews in Jamaica – 12 Jews owned slaves – only 4%)! it could never have been the propensity of Jews. This Professor at Berkeley specialized in this subject and said the book saying Jews were financiers was inaccurate and was a way to spread antisemitism. David Duke and Faracon (sp?) used this information for the scapegoating of Jews. Islamists and early Christians wanted to falsify history to blame Jews.

First, this is how you spell Louis Farrakhan‘s name. This does NOT mean I agree with anything he says. So, let’s be clear about that.
Next, I did not say anything about Jews ‘owning‘ slaves. I said they owned the slave ships and the insurance companies that insured the cargo, which happened to be human beings in this instance. These enterprises yielded large sums of money for European Jews (not Hebrews who are from Ethiopia).
These are the names of the slave ships: http://home.btclick.com/jabu/ships.htm
Below is a list of the Jewish slave ships and the Jewish owners. We know that Africans sold Africans into slavery. However, they could not have done so if there was no market and they certainly could not have known the treachery these people would face aboard the ships and wherever they landed in South America, the Caribbean, and America.

Further reading on that page:
“Jews also took an active part in the Dutch colonial slave trade; indeed, the bylaws of the Recife and Mauricia congregations (1648) included an imposta (Jewish tax) of five soldos for each Negro slave a Brazilian Jew purchased from the West Indies Company. Slave auctions were postponed if they fell on a Jewish holiday. In Curacao in the seventeenth century, as well as in the British colonies of Barbados and Jamaica in the 18th century, Jewish merchants played a major role in the slave trade. In fact, in all the American colonies, whether French (Martinique), British or Dutch, Jewish merchants frequently dominated.
“This was no less true on the North American mainland where, during the 18th century, Jews participated in the ‘triangular trade’ that brought slaves from Africa to the West Indies and there exchanged them for molasses, which was taken to New England and converted into rum for sale in Africa. Isaac Da Costa of Charleston in the 1750’s, David Franks of Philadelphia in the 1760’s, and Aaron Lopez of Newport in the late 1760’s and early 1770’s dominated Jewish slave trading on the American continent.”
Dr. Raphael discusses the central role of the Jews in the New World commerce and the African slave trade (pp. 23-25):
SEVENTEENTH AND EIGHTEENTH CENTURIES JEWISH INTER ISLAND TRADE
Dr. JC related that “In 1999, I visited the first Jewish temple built in Curacao.”
Regarding insurance companies that benefitted from the trade of humans in the middle passage:
Dr. JC continued:
It is clear that ALL white people did not participate in the middle passage and that only a handful of white slave owners ran the trade. However, the supposition that whites are superior to blacks and that they should be privileged has benefitted ALL white people and been the demise of ALL black people or people of so-called minority groups, which also is not true. Although the dollar amount of the wealth of this family is said to be unfounded, the Rothschild family is a wealthy family descending from Mayer Amschel Rothschild, a court Jew to the German Landgraves of Hesse-Kassel in the Free City of Frankfurt, who established his banking business in the 1760s.
Creation of Israel, 1948. On May 14, 1948, David Ben-Gurion, the head of the Jewish Agency, proclaimed the establishment of the State of Israel. U.S. President Harry S. Truman recognized the new nation on the same day.

About the continent to which the Middle East belongs to:
Some definitions include Turkey, part of which is in Europe, all of North Africa, and Asia across to Afghanistan. The most normal definition of the Middle East, you might say, includes parts of eastern North Africa (Egypt, for example) and the far west of Asia. It’s in Asia, except for the part (according to some descriptions) that’s in North Africa. It all depends on who’s doing the line drawing. For the US Dept. of State, the “Near East” is in SW Asia and “North Africa” is, well, in northern Africa, including Mauritania and Sudan.
The bottom line is that people say and write whatever fits their story. That does not make what they say or write the TRUTH.
Meanwhile, Who Are The Hebrew Israelites?
This is just some food for thought. It is not meant to be anti-semetic. This is information that Pan-Africanists have uncovered to help children of African descent and so-called Native Americans, the Moors, understand who they really are and how their history has been misappropriated and twisted.
I learned a whole lot today and I love you both. I believe it is so important to get to the Truth or in today’s world, receive the Truth. We are in the midst of this major, major transformation where so much is being revealed to us. It is mind-boggling. Our emotions can become so entangled in our reforming this disconnected world to one of Unity.
Here is my approach:http://comingtothetable.org
You have words.
You have words to tell.
You have words to tell the story.
The story of your life
Is being told by words.
Columnist Al Calloway of the South Florida Times posed this question:
What’s the black strategy if Trump wins?
The largely Republican-right white nationalist Trump crowds roar approval when the Donald cites years of African American loyalty to the Democratic Party for which, he alleges, they have nothing to show for it. Trump indicts Hillary’s boast of 30 years in public service and exhorts African Americans to vote for him, stating, “you have nothing to lose.”
Here’s Calloway’s article: http://www.sfltimes.com/opinion/whats-the-black-strategy-if-trump-wins
Before even reading the article, I responded: RUN!!!
Then, S.E. Anderson responded to me with:
To which I retorted:
Obviously, fright and flight is no joke. But running toward freedom is a viable strategy.
The Northern flight through the Underground RR was most definitely ‘running’.
Tubman’s quote still stands, “If they knew they were slaves, I could have saved thousands.”
We need a flight plan because, if Trump wins, even a railroad ticket won’t help us.
I had a nice, long talk with Patricia Hilliard, Asa’s daughter. I became a lifetime member of the Association of Black Women Historians. I struck up a conversation with George McDonald about:
- The number of people lynched in National Parks
- Homeless people living in National Parks
to determine if his $5 million budget could be used to get an ‘act of Congress’ to set up lodgings in National Parks for homeless citizens, many of whom are women with children and veterans.
It’s ridiculous that there are 84.4 million acres in the National Parks system, while more than 500,000 people – a quarter of them children – have nowhere to live. It is ludicrous. It is criminal because there are still human beings that do not fit into the pattern of ‘civilization’ because they are, in fact, nomadic, which is how most tribes started out on this planet.
But the bureaucracy that set up the National Parks System that was lily-white, until The Petermans took the initiative to confront the NPS regime and published their first book Legacy on the Land to encourage African Americans to visit some of the 58 national parks in the U.S.A. despite their ingrained fear of forests where their forefathers, grandfathers, uncles, and brothers hung from trees.
What is it that we cannot get???
Running from the truth or running to the light?
Either way, either of the two candidates running will undoubtedly cause one or more groups in the country to RUN!!!
So, running will be the norm, whether it’s for Black people running from “Emboldened alienated white working-class folk, the police, and various white nationalists that will be deputized by Trump to ‘Make America Great [WHITE] Again,’ or those folks running from us. Somebody gonna be runnin’!!!
And ‘Black Liberation’ cannot nor will ever be attained without WHITE LIBERATION from the idiotic ideology of white supremacy, a paradigm that is shifting in ever-deepening quicksand. Their time is up. GAME OVER. WAKE UP melanated people, and push back!
Run, people, run toward the light, toward TRUTH, toward the land o’ make believe.
Run, until you reach the edge of the abyss that is human beings believing that to be civilized is to put a gate at the entrance of land that once was and should be put to good use by people living on sidewalks of the so-called ‘greatest show on Earth’ – Amerikkka!
Below is my response to this article
Sam’s Club CEO Under Fire From White Men For Insisting on Diversity
America is a corporation based on free enterprise, meaning that anyone, white, black, brown, yellow, or red can start their own business. Blaming others for your failure is nonsensical. Each of us, every human being on Earth has a gift that is uniquely theirs.
It costs less than $100 to incorporate a business in any state in the United States. I’m not sure what it costs in other countries. But the corporate tax per year is $150 before May 1 in the U.S. So for $100 plus $150 per year, you’re in business. Your target market can be anyone or just the people in your particular group. Advertisement is the key to doing business – letting people know you offer a product or service.
The problem is that people do not educate themselves on entrepreneurship. They are lazy and would rather get a J-O-B working to make somebody else (usually white men in business) RICH! The moment you take a job, you have placed a value on your time.
- If you are not getting paid what you think you are worth, who’s fault is that?
- If you don’t get the necessary degrees to increase your worth, who’s fault is that?
Stop blaming somebody else for your own shortcomings. Evidently Rosalind Brewster did the work to make herself valuable to Sam’s Club. She’s right about the importance of diversity. But how many women and people of color have done the work she has to be in the position she is in?
Either get an education or start your own business or do both. That is the solution in my opinion.
After being uprooted from my lakeside apartment in Oakland Park, Florida, in February 2013, moving three times, with the last one being to Atlanta with my daughter, I am finally back in my beloved South Florida.
Now, that I’m back I know why I missed Florida so much.
First, there is the beach! The Atlantic Ocean was calling to me in Atlanta and I could not wait to get there. So, my first morning back, I got in my car, emptied of its cargo into the tiny bedroom given me by my generous brother. I drove over the Intercoastal to Palm Beach and immediately, I was caught up by the sea, sand, and sky. The beautiful clouds beckoned me to the seashore but I was not to be distracted by this dreamy moment because I was destined to arrived at the place where my second reason for moving back to Florida was.
For almost 2 years, while living in Atlanta, I only saw my Dad (96) three times. I spoke with him almost every day. But this was not enough. I needed to see, touch, hug, and kiss my Dad.
Although he’s 96, he is alert, mindful, and reminiscent of decades gone by. He always asked me where I was, what I was doing, and how I was feeling. He always tells me to take good care of myself. Truthfully, it is my father’s counsel that has kept me from ever being depressed.
Upon returning to South Florida, I am able to visit him two or three times a week, now. This is such a blessing and I am ever grateful for having the ability to make this choice to return.
The third reason that I’m so happy to be back home is seeing so many of my friends. Lisa invited me to a luncheon with women the first Saturday I was home. I drove to Hallandale and really enjoyed meeting these progressive women.
